Okay, so I'm different. Usually, people want to exclude stuff from an automagically generated navigation – I would like to add stuff. :)

Let's see if I can explain this: I have a primary navigation which this module is just perfect for. But the site also has a secondary navigation in the footer, so there should be an item in the primary nav which skips to said secondary nav in the footer. So basically, I would have to append an item to the nav generated by the module, technically another list item containing a link to an anchor on the same page.

Conveniently, this "skip to service nav" item would be the last item of the primary navigation, so I came up with this:

'outer_tpl' => '<ul class="clearfix">||<li><a id="skip-to-service" href="#service">Service</a></li></ul>'

which works fine unless I'm on a page which has children (<li class="current has_children">). In that case, outer_tpl is "reset" to '<ul class="clearfix">||</ul>' or something, at least the "appended" list item is not rendered.

Not being a PHP coder myself, I can't figure out if this is intended behaviour of the module or maybe a bug. (Although I'm aware I might be misusing 'outer_tpl' here.) I also thought about different approaches to realize that kind of nav item, maybe by using a "dummy page" or something, but I can't figure out how to do that. (Suggestions welcome, of course.)

Yeah it's a bug, thanks for finding it. Should be fixed in the last commit. Let me know if it works for you too.

Soma: I have used your module in one project and I like it very much. Have worked without any worries. But now I have navigation scenario that I am not sure if it is possible with MarkupSimpleNavigation or should I code snippet for this.

Default view works like this (normal two levels deep):

LEVEL1 Page a

---LEVEL2 Page aa

---LEVEL2 Page ab

---LEVEL2 Page ac

LEVEL1 Page b

---LEVEL2 Page ba

---LEVEL2 Page bc

LEVEL1 Page c

---LEVEL2 Page ca

But when I go to level2, it should collapse that page and show level3 pages there, but not from other branches. Like this:

LEVEL1 Page a

---LEVEL2 Page aa

---LEVEL2 Page ab

------LEVEL3 Page aba

------LEVEL3 Page abb

---LEVEL2 Page ac

LEVEL1 Page b

---LEVEL2 Page ba

---LEVEL2 Page bc

LEVEL1 Page c

---LEVEL2 Page ca

Is this something that is possible with just settings?

No its not possible. Kinda very special case.

Well u could try making it max levels 3 and hide third level with css and open on click.

True, should be possible with css. I'll go that route for now, thanks!

Hi Soma, I just downloaded and installed this on a new site, and there's a weird problem:

I have pages like:

Home

About Us

More About Us

Even More About Us

Donate Online

Contact Us

If I click on "More About Us" above, the page loads fine. But, if I click on "About Us" from the "More About Us" page, I get a 404 Page Not Found error. The menu has prepended "/home/" to the URL instead of "/about-us/". So if I try to go to "Even More About Us," I also get a 404, because the URL is now "/home/even-more-about-us" instead of "/about-us/even-more-about-us"

Do you know what could cause this? I thought it might have to do with show_root but that wasn't it. Thanks!

Marc can you show a little more of what you're doing exactly? I can't think of anything that would produce this, so far it works without known problems.

One problem I noticed while using (and really enjoying!) this module. If I have this kind of structure:

/news/ (tpl: news)
  /pw3-released/ (tpl: news-item)
  /ryan-looking-for-drupal-work/ (tpl: news-item)
  /soma-takes-over-pw-project/ (tpl: news-item)

And all those pages use Simple Navigation with these options:

$options = array(
   'collapsed' => true,
   'selector' => 'template!=news-item'
   );

When looking one of the news-item pages it will render the navigation just fine (excluding the news-items, but showing the "/news/" page. But what is missing is the "parent" class from the news page in nav list. Not sure if that is intended or something that is difficult to fix, but it is frustrating to lose css class there. We are still under the news-page.

Well it gets kinda complex, and my guess is since there's no childs output it doesn't get added.

I'm not sure how easy it will be to add it.

I just pushed an update and is now to 1.1.2. It was easier than first thought.

Thanks apeisa for finding it.

Hi again Soma, thanks so much for this module which saves me loads of time.

Do you have any tips for using it with a select/option menu for mobile. I can't seem to get it to display correctly.

Thanks!

maybe:

   $options = array(
 'has_children_class' => '',
 'levels' => false,
 'max_levels' => 2,
 'show_root' => true,
 'outer_tpl' => '<select id="select_mobile">||</select>',
 'inner_tpl' => '<optgroup label="¬">||</optgroup>',
 'list_tpl' => '||',
 'item_tpl' => '<option value="{url}">{title}</option>',
 'item_current_tpl' => '<option value="{url}" selected="selected">{title}</option>'
   );

Not sure what you're about.

But this should give a select menu dropdown

$treeMenu = $modules->get("MarkupSimpleNavigation");
echo $treeMenu->render( array(
   'collapsed' => true,
   'max_levels' => 1,
   'outer_tpl' => "<select>||</select>",
   'list_tpl' => "||",
   'item_tpl' => "<option value='{url}'>{title}</option>"
 )
);

Soma and Martijn, thank you both, I have no idea why but I hadn't seen your replies until now, I apologize.

I ended up using a slightly adapted version as you'd need the "onchange" part of the select:

<select id="mobile_menu" class="visible-phone flr" onchange="location = this.options[this.selectedIndex].value;">
     <?php
     $mobile_nav = $modules->get("MarkupSimpleNavigation");
$options = array(
        'has_children_class' => '',
        'levels' => false,
        'max_levels' => 2,
        'show_root' => true,
        'selector' => 'template!=blog_entry|gallery|category|partner|portfolio_entry|event|testimonial|project_skill',
        'inner_tpl' => '<optgroup label="¬">||</optgroup>',
        'list_tpl' => '||',
        'item_tpl' => '<option value="{url}">{title}</option>',
        'item_current_tpl' => '<option value="{url}" selected="selected">{title}</option>'
       );
echo $mobile_nav->render($options); ?>
     </select>

Thanks again!

onchange part if you have jQuery:

If you have jQuery loaded, this example look nicer I think. ( although your inline js is quicker )

// check if input select exists & stick the onchange part to it
if($("#mobile_menu").size() > 0) {
   $("#mobile_menu").change(function() {
    window.location = $(this).find("option:selected").val();
   });
}

The input select menu is used on mobile most likely. To turn off js there is just a little harder then on normal desktop environment. So most people don't tough the js setting at all.

A solution with a button: wrapping a submit button in a <noscript> tag. Then if javascript is turned off you will see the submit button. ( never done this, but probably work )

      Hi! I've created a small Inputfield module called InputfieldFloatRange which allows you to use an HTML5 <input type="range" ../> slider as an InputField. I needed something like this for a project where the client needs to be able to tweak this value more based on 'a feeling' than just entering a boring old number. Maybe more people can use this so I'm hereby releasing it into the wild.  
       
      What is it?
      The missing range slider Inputfield for Processwire. 
      What does it do?
      This module extends InputfieldFloat and allows you to use HTML5 range sliders for number fields in your templates.
      It includes a visible and editable value field, to override/tweak the value if required.  
      Features
      Min/max values Precision (number of decimals) Steps (Read more) Manual override of the selected value (will still adhere to the rules above) Usage
      Clone / zip repo Install FieldtypeFloatRange, this automatically installs the Inputfield Create new field of type `Float (range)` or convert an existing `Float`, `Integer` or `Text` field. To render the field's value simply echo `$page->field` Demo
      A field with Min=0, Max=1, Step=0.2, Precision=2

      Field with settings Min=0, Max=200, Step=0.25, Precision=2

       
      Todo
      Make the display-field's size configurable (will use the Input Size field setting)  Hopefully become redundant If it's usable for others I'll add it to the Modules list  
      Changelog
      v002
      - Fix issue where setting the step value to an empty value created problem with validation
      - Make the display-field optional 
      v001
      - Initial release
       
      Thanks!

      Another little admin helper module...
      Template Field Widths
      Adds a "Field widths" field to Edit Template that allows you to quickly set the widths of inputfields in the template.

      Why?
      When setting up a new template or trying out different field layouts I find it a bit slow and tedious to have to open each field individually in a modal just to set the width. This module speeds up the process.
      Installation
      Install the Template Field Widths module.
      Config options
      You can set the default presentation of the "Field widths" field to collapsed or open. Field widths entered into the Template Field Widths inputfield are only applied if the Edit Template form is submitted with the Template Field Widths inputfield in an opened state. "Collapsed" is the recommended setting if you think you might also use core inputs for setting field widths in a template context. You can choose Name or Label as the primary identifier shown for the field. The unchosen alternative will become the title attribute shown on hover. You can choose to show the original field width next to the template context field width.

      This module allows you to automatically rename file (including image) uploads according to a configurable format
      This module lets you define as many rules as you need to determine how uploaded files will be named and you can have different rules for different pages, templates, fields, and file extensions, or one rule for all uploads. Renaming works for files uploaded via the admin interface and also via the API, including images added from remote URLs.   Github: https://github.com/adrianbj/CustomUploadNames
      Modules Directory: http://modules.processwire.com/modules/process-custom-upload-names/
      Renaming Rules
      The module config allows you to set an unlimited number of Rename Rules. You can define rules to specific fields, templates, pages, and file extensions. If a rule option is left blank, the rule with be applied to all fields/templates/pages/extensions. Leave Filename Format blank to prevent renaming for a specific field/template/page combo, overriding a more general rule. Rules are processed in order, so put more specific rules before more general ones. You can drag to change the order of rules as needed. The following variables can be used in the filename format: $page, $template, $field, and $file. For some of these (eg. $field->description), if they haven't been filled out and saved prior to uploading the image, renaming won't occur on upload, but will happen on page save (could be an issue if image has already been inserted into RTE/HTML field before page save). Some examples: $page->title mysite-{$template->name}-images $field->label $file->description {$page->name}-{$file->filesize}-kb prefix-[Y-m-d_H-i-s]-suffix (anything inside square brackets is is considered to be a PHP date format for the current date/time) randstring[n] (where n is the number of characters you want in the string) ### (custom number mask, eg. 001 if more than one image with same name on a page. This is an enhanced version of the automatic addition of numbers if required) If 'Rename on Save' is checked files will be renamed again each time a page is saved (admin or front-end via API). WARNING: this setting will break any direct links to the old filename, which is particularly relevant for images inserted into RTE/HTML fields. The Filename Format can be defined using plain text and PW $page variable, for example: mysite-{$page->path} You can preserve the uploaded filename for certain rules. This will allow you to set a general renaming rule for your entire site, but then add a rule for a specific page/template/field that does not rename the uploaded file. Just simply build the rule, but leave the Filename Format field empty. You can specify an optional character limit (to nearest whole word) for the length of the filename - useful if you are using $page->path, $path->name etc and have very long page names - eg. news articles, publication titles etc. NOTE - if you are using ProcessWire's webp features, be sure to use the useSrcExt because if you have jpg and png files on the same page and your rename rules result in the same name, you need to maintain the src extension so they are kept as separate files.
      $config->webpOptions = array(     'useSrcExt' => false, // Use source file extension in webp filename? (file.jpg.webp rather than file.webp) ); Acknowledgments
      The module config settings make use of code from Pete's EmailToPage module and the renaming function is based on this code from Ryan: http://processwire.com/talk/topic/3299-ability-to-define-convention-for-image-and-file-upload-names/?p=32623 (also see this post for his thoughts on file renaming and why it is the lazy way out - worth a read before deciding to use this module). 
       
       
      NOTE:
      This should not be needed on most sites, but I work with lots of sites that host PDFs and photos/vectors that are available for download and I have always renamed the files on upload because clients will often upload files with horrible meaningless filenames like:
      Final ReportV6 web version for John Feb 23.PDF
